1976 Was more than just retirement from baseball for Hank Aaron, it was a season long celebration of the man who had broken Babe Ruth's record and stood for civil rights for all players. On September 18, 1976, Aaron was honored in Milwaukee in front of his home fans. Posed along with his wife and in uniform, this is a poignant reminder that despite all the racism and hate, Aaron was beloved by his fans! Stamped on the back and with note to the photographer being John Biever (son of Vern Biever, famous Packers photographer).
